    Really interesting to see the survey results. How brilliant for those expecting to live to 100- like you say it would be great to hear more from these respondents. I wonder to what extent our expectations of how long we’ll live affect how we live now & the choices we make. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Helen. I’m glad you also found it interesting. I’ll see if I can find out anything more about those respondents to give me some clues!

    Interesting indeed, and well presented, but can you please tell us something about how you obtained your sample respondents, and how they compare with the population as a whole in terms of age, social class etc. ? Were they a random sample? Apologies if you’ve already explained this somewhere.

      Thanks Rita. Alas, I’m not sure how my sample compares with the overall population. The population is somewhat distorted, in that I sent this out to 200+ friends, family members and acquaintances who I thought might be interested and willing to respond. As the survey was anonymous I have no way of telling who actually completed it. The survey was only intended to be indicative at best, rather than being a true representation of the wider population. I hope that helps!

    I was one of the outliers who said 100+. Reaching 100 or pretty close to it is genetic . I’m halfway there and I’ve already had had thyroid cancer, so statistically I have a greater risk of developing a secondary cancer down the road. Sometimes I ask myself why I live my life and save for retirement based on the assumption that I’ll live to be 100, when I’m more likely to become a victim of a chemically toxic environment well before then. I just hope to stay healthy and mentally fit for as long as possible!
